Pushkar (map) is a small holy town in the state of Rajasthan famous for the Pushkar Lake, various ghats and temples spread all around the lake. Though Brahma is considered to be the creator of the world in *Hinduism, Pushkar is the only temple of this important deity in the whole world.
While there are many temples in Pushkar, the majority do not allow foreigners/non-Hindus to enter. If you are allowed in, you will have to take off your shoes to enter the temples.
If you only have the desire/time to visit 2 temples, the one-of-a-kind *Brahma Temple (map) and the *Savitri Mata Mandir (map), with a beautiful view of Pushkar Lake, are must-sees.
